The Invitation

Posted On März 14, 2007
März 14, 2007

Wurdest du jemals von jemandem dazu eingeladen auch nur einige dieser Fragen zu beantworten?
Stell dir für einen Moment vor, Arbeitskollegen, dein Chef, Partner, Freunde oder deine Familie hätten es getan. Wie würde es dich beeinflussen?

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine and your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine and your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself: if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul: if you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see beauty, even when it’s not pretty, every day, and if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, ‘Yes!’

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you can stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.

After all, I know it was my choice to read, however I genuinely believed you would probably have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

In order to be successful in fixing your credit ranking you have to make sure that from this minute you pay your entire monthly fees promptly in advance of their scheduled date. It is definitely significant given that by not necessarily accomplishing that, all other activities that you will take to improve your credit position will not be effective. Thanks for revealing your concepts.
